Dr Lana Gerrard-Molle Psychodynamic psychologist , NW2
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, registered with the BPS and HCPC. I have a broad training in a number of psychological models including Psychodynamic psychotherapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), and specialist training in Mentalisation Based Therapy (MBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), and Narrative Explosure Therapy (NET).
Alongside my private practice I work for the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust in their Primary Care Adult Service. I have been working as a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with young people and adults in various NHS and private settings since completing my Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology. I have many years of experience working with individuals suffering from a variety of mental health problems including depression, anxiety, PTSD, and post-natal depression, and, severe and enduring mental illness including psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder and personality disorders.
My therapeutic approach is relational and I believe that it is important for people to maintain satisfying and fulfilling relationships, both with themselves and others, in order to maintain emotional health. I specialise in psychodynamic psychotherapy which has a particular focus on the ways in which our early experiences shape and influence how we relate to ourselves and others. I work collaboratively with clients to build a strong and secure therapeutic relationship and tailor therapy to fit each individual.
I offer short-term time limited work as well as long-term psychotherapy. You do not need to commit to ongoing psychotherapy when you make contact with me. Our initial appointment will allow us the opportunity to think together about your current situation and difficulties, and how we could work together.
